Nighttime Is My Time (CLARK, MARY HIGGINS)

I miss her old writing style

Mary Higgins Clark sure doesn’t write them like she used to. I remember how suspenseful her first works were and truly miss that. One major problem that I find with this book, and has been the case for the last few, is that she has too many suspects and they are all someone the main character knows. I like the anonymity she once gave her “bad guys”. I never felt any suspense in this story, but I kept reading so I could find out which of the many suspicious characters was “the Owl”. The overall feel of this book has been the same in the last 3-4 books she has written. They definitely are not page-turners and don’t have me wishing I could sit and read more of the book. I have always been a Mary Higgins Clark fan and I guess I will continue to read her books, although they are not my top choice anymore. I keep hoping the next one will be where she finds her stride again.

She’s baaaack!

First of all, I have to say I have been a Mary Higgins Clark fan ever since I read “Where Are the Children.” However, I have been somewhat disappointed with her last few books, especially the latest one. That was not the case with “Nighttime Is My Time.” I think Clark has returned to her old form with a vengeance in this book and it was a pleasure to read. I couldn’t put it down!

The story focuses on Jean Sheridan and a 20-year high school reunion she attends. Jean was one of a group of girls who sat together at lunch and who, at one time or another, made fun of a lonely high school student whose alter ego is “The Owl,” a homicidal maniac. All of the girls, except Jean and her friend, Laura, have died mysterious deaths, in the order in which they sat at the lunch table. Will Jean and Laura be next?

Throw into the mix two unsolved 20-year-old murders, an adopted daughter who doesn’t know her birth mother, a detective who has never given up on solving one of the murders, a large cast of suspects, and an audacious high school newspaper reporter named Jake Perkins, and you have a taut, exciting mystery that keeps you guessing until the very end the identity of “The Owl.”

Bravo, Mary Higgins Clark, for getting back to your original style. You won this reader back — in spades!

Hoot, Hoot, Hoot says the Owl…….

This book was terrific. There are so many twists and turns that you did not know what to think. The fact that all the girls were friends and that Jeannie had a secret that she thought was safe. All the different personalities were set just right to keep the story alive. This book was a good page turner and had the suspense, action, drama and spicy ingredients to make you keep reading and not put the book down.
Mary Higgins Clark is definitely the true queen of suspense and drama. I can’t wait to see what the next novel will bring.
